Comment Best of both worlds, Montessori? (Score 1) 700

Every Montessori school/group of schools seem different but I've seen many good ones in different countries/states. There are both private and in some cases integrated into the public system Montessori schools. I'm sure quality and, even if they are following state/provincial education guidelines, flakiness, but with a little research you can find a school at a reasonable price that will treat your child as an individual, yet help them grow socially too.

Ford Dumping Windows For QNX In New Vehicles 314

innocent_white_lamb writes "Ford has announced that their in-vehicle technology called Sync will be based on Blackberry's QNX operating system and will no longer use Microsoft Windows. My own 2013 Ford Escape has the Windows-based Sync system. I wonder if they will issue an update to change it to QNX." Anonymous sources inside Ford cited reliability problems with Windows and lower licensing costs for the switch to the classic realtime OS.

I've been thinking about this. I can buy clip on battery packs of various sizes for many standard phone formats. This is awesome. Most of the time I can wander around with a light phone. The times I'm going to need longer battery life I can clip a battery to the back and off I go.

Well most stocks went down over the same period and MSFT has been increasing their dividend slowly. I don't and wont own any but for a large company it has not done too badly. Going forward I can not imagine it ever growing at the historic rates, they are just too large and intrenched, but I don't expect they will do too badly either.

What this country needs is a dime that will buy a good five-cent bagel.
